    Well, first of all 20 hours is with the screen off - having that backlight on will chew through your battery in no time. As will wifi. ;)

    Apple's tech specs say 22 hours of audio or 5 hours of video. If your touch is only getting 4-6 hours for the first 80% of the battery, you might have a lemon. I would call Apple Support or take it in.

    a lemon is a rare case in wich your ipod is defective in some sort of way in your case i cant hold a charge for longer then 4-6 hours when the recomended time is 22 for audio and 5 for video

    Calling something a "lemon" means that it might be not work correctly right off the assembly line. You might have a crappy iPod that should be replaced.

    That can create a world of problems. Do you have SSH shut off?

    yes, but it shouldn't be that low at this point. Have you shut SSH off?

    I would try to unjailbreak it (if your up for that) and see if its fixed. Otherwise check out the genious bar at your local apple store.
